The Republic of Korea Air Force Media Contents Team and the Air Force Military Band have teamed up for a fun little parody of Les Miserables called Les Militaribles.

The 13-minute clip is quite clever, very well done and has done very well –garnering nearly 2 million hits since released last Tuesday. And, apparently, Russell Crowe has given it a nod of approval.


The video was directed by Lieutenant Chung Da-hoon, 25, a film student before being called to duty in the military. He told Reuters:

“Snow removal is like a black hole. There’s no start and no end of it…We thought we could get sympathy from all Korean men and women who have brothers or sons. But we didn’t expect the response from overseas.”

Happy Lunar New Year to you all.
